Former US Attorney Preet Bharara Joining CNN

Former US Attorney Preet Bharara Joining CNN”

Preet Bharara says he believes President Trump would have asked him "to do something inappropriate" if he had stayed on as US attorney for NY as part of the Trump administration. "I'm doing a podcast because I care about justice, I care about fairness, I care about amplifying my voice ... and I couldn't get a TV show", he jokes.

Bharara spent the rest of 46-minute podcast episode, titled "That Time President Trump Fired Me", in a conversation with Leon Panetta, the former Democratic secretary of defense, Central Intelligence Agency chief and White House chief of staff.

It appears CNN is trying to beef up its coverage of President Trump's many legal troubles.

The network also signed a deal with Walter M. Shaub Jr., the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, who resigned in July.

On his newly launched podcast, "Stay Tuned with Preet", Bharara listed a number of reasons why he thinks he was sacked just three months into the new administration, including former FBI director James Comey's investigation into ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Trump's involvement in the case, as well as Sessions' criminal case against former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was recently pardoned. A short time later, Trump's Justice Department told all 46 Obama-appointed federal prosecutors to submit their resignations.

Bharara said he doesn't know why he was sacked.
